This is a pretty long trailer for a movie that isn’t coming out until February, but I am excited! It is a pretty epic looking apocalypse, and I am on board! Not to mention there is a pretty great Guardians of the Galaxy joke in there, so at least we know the tone of the movie is on point.
Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder in a movie being grumpy at one another might just be my favorite pitch for a movie in a long time. After watching the trailer for Destination Wedding (not to be confused with the Hallmark movie of the same title), I hope they don’t ruin it by falling in to lazy rom-com traps. I mean who doesn’t want a Grumpy Old Men (except one is a one woman) Gen-X edition! But even if they do, I would watch these two watch paint dry together, so I am all in!
While Rage 2 lacks Borderlands signature cell-shaded look, the over the top zany post apocalyptic action seems a lot like Gearbox’s main money maker. Much like with Prey, it seems that Bethesda is doing something a bit different with id’s old IP. Which is fine, Rage was never considered a classis, I just hope it can find a way to differentiate itself from Borderlands. The real question is now that they have resurrected almost all of id’s FPS titles, when are we getting that Commander Keen game?
Wes Anderson is kind of low hanging fruit for this sort of thing. I mean he knows he makes movies with the same emotional beats, imagery, and story lines over and over, but we love him for it anyway. It is just what he does. However, Honest Trailers completely knocks it out of the park with this video. It was all I could do to keep from crying I was laughing so hard. Honest Trailers is usually pretty funny, but this is one of their best. Obviously you will need to have seen a few Wes Anderson movies to truly appreciate it, but if you are fan of his work like I am, it is a must watch.
As you can see in the trailer above, we see Venom’s symbiote in a glass jar at one point, but we never see it on Tom Hardy, so the first Venom trailer is Venom free. Tom is also doing some strange take on an American accent. I don’t know if he is trying to be more New York or something, but it is not working. I hope he gets a mask to mumble in to quick to straighten that out. Anyway, it is not a great first impression, but they have until October to win me over.
